DS has a rather large *ahem*. And I think this may be contributing to why he often refuses to wear undies.
Has anyone else faced this dilema?
Should I let him go comando? (I feel a bit prudish on this and prefer him to have underwear on) Or is there some other option? Maybe boxers or something?
Having never had that particular apendage I'm not really sure what is best for him.
And DH is no help, he seems thoroughly embarrassed by the whole situation.
I commented to him the other day that DS should only wear boardies when swimming as lycra is just way too revealing, and he turned a light shade of beetroot and walked away shaking his head!

My cousin has an extremely large penis. He was actually measured by dr's every year until 15 as at age 3 he was 4 inches long. Apparantly it can cause medical problems, impotence etc later in life.

If he is that big that he finds underwear uncomfortable I would buy the next size up, or maybe get him looked at to rule out any problems.

My son (7) is blessed, and hates underwear because it rubs, but I just bought the next size up and took in the waist for him which helps.

lol I dont think its anything to do with the size of it, one of my boys is not so well endowed but hates the constriction of underwear. If I dont check he's wearing it, he'd go to school commando :S

An alternative we trialled was boxer shorts, he did seem to prefer these but I got sick of them hanging over the top of his pants!

I really would be questioning if this is an appropriate thread.

I remember one not too long ago about this type of thing and it derailed very quickly.

What??? An apprpraite thread? Of course it is. Just because the word penis is used doensn't make it taboo! It's really about undies for gods sake.

I would try boxers. If you can find those cotton ones that sit against the skin, can't think of the name, they might bw more comfortable as there is more material to keep him feeling "tucked in" i suppose

You have got to be kidding me.
It is a genuine question about a parenting issue in regards to a child.
Isn't that what this place is for?
If you see can see anything else in that then you have serious issues.
Thankyou to those who have offered suggestions as to how to help him, much appreciated thankyou

Bonds undies are good, you need the type that have a 'pocket' at the front rather than the type that are just made of one piece of fabric (like women's underwear).  Loose cotton boxers have seams that rub and can be uncomfortable, the fitted ones made out of stretch material, again with a pocket, are also good.

Whilst not wanting to comment on DS's penis, lol I will say that he is not a fan of undies and I have since bought him the little Bonds trunks, the boxers that hug his legs and he finds them really comfortable and has no problem wearing them. Best N Less have a cheaper brand too that he wears and they come in cool designs that little boys like.

Try boxers, maybe they will be better for him.

ETA: Was going to suggest trunks too - these are what DF prefers - the tighter boxers.

Another vote for the bonds with the pocket at the front, my DS won't wear undies now and will only wear these because he said they are more comfortable.

i know DF wears trunks they are like boxers but more of a stretchy cotton blend, like tshirt material iykwim-sort of in between boxers and jocks.  i saw them yesterday in bonds boys sizes laughing2.gif i was laughing as they are quite cute hehe

My 2yo son (who isn't that big) doesn't like jocks either.  He prefers the little boy leg ones (as many PPs have suggested).  The are a little dearer, but worth it for comfort.  Having said that, he still takes them off and leaves them off when he goes to the toilet.  I am forever collecting undies from the toilet.  He much prefers commando.

rofl sorry, but I have to ask... is there somewhere that has a list of measurements as to what constitutes 'large' at any given age?  I would hate to think my boys might be disadvantaged at a later age... they do seem quite comfortable in their underwear.

Why would it not be an appropriate thread on a parenting forum?

My son does commando most of the time although I do insist he put undies on for daycare.

I would say its more that he doesnt tuck it the right way wink.gif
Or perhaps invest in the undies that bonds makes with the pouch in the front, rather than the little boys ones that are simply flat at the front like ladies underwear.

Ok so maybe it's not his size that causes the discomfort. It was just the only thing I could think of that might explain the desire to free ball!

Bonds and Gap are the 2 faves here.

DS would rather wear undies on his head on any given day.  wacko.gif

I think going commando is a very popular concept with most little boys.

#20 Nora.

I used to have a hell of a time getting DS to keep his undies/shorts/pants on. He seems to have outgrown the entirely nude stage & now wears pants but minus the undies.

The two little boys next door are always standing at the broken paling in our fence chatting to my two & they're naked about 80% of the time too. Even when the boys come to our place dressed, they've stripped off within 3 minutes.Which leads me to question if boys between 2 & 4 just prefer being half naked?

#21 ~MaidenWarrior~

My 2.8 yr old hates jocks. If he is at home he is naked altogether and if he is anywhere else he just goes commando. It is easier for him anyway if he can just pull his shorts down to do a wee instead of having to worry about getting jocks off too.

ph34r.gif  ph34r.gif I actally had a nurses ask me once if DS penis was swollen when he went in for another reason. When I told her that it look normal to me she replied that it was the biggest she had seen on a child his age ph34r.gif  ph34r.gif I don't know haven't anything else to compare it to.

She didn't say anything about medical problems but at 4 years old DS hates wearing underwear also - it's a challenge every morning and we need to check before going to kindy that he is wearing some.

I love the Bonds on him  eexcite.gif  eexcite.gif  so may need to buy some more

I have no idea if my boys are "well endowed" or not,l as I've never made a comparison of penis size between them and other boys their age!

But going jock-free is just something some boys like I think. One of our sons would not dream of ever being without underwear, whereas another of our boys would happily go commando all the time.
We supply them with a choice in their underwear drawer - jocks, boy-leg type things, boxers - and leave them to make their own decision about what's comfortable for the day.

#24 Guest_GLRR_*

Posted 18 January 2009 - 10:11 AM

I'm currently toilet training and my son will go on the potty all day if he has no underwear on but if he is wearing jocks he will just wee/poo in them. I guess they feel like nappies? So I think when I venture out in public with him, it'll have to be commando? Since there is a lot of boy mums in here, can anyone tell me if they had the same problem and how they taught the boys to take the jocks off and go?

Another lover of the bonds trunks undies.  DS is similar, these are really good, they aren't constricting, but give good support, especially for sporting activities apparently..
